    Published by Redleaf Press New Product Free sample chapter

    Inspiring Wonder, Awe, and Empathy offers a series of best practices for child care providers to nurture a child’s spiritual development—an extension of social-emotional learning. The book helps educators introduce young children to a system that begins with love, is nurtured by wonder, and leads to the empathy needed for learning. You can provide support and strengthen children’s self-awareness through deep connections, increased social awareness, and pro-social behaviors, such as kindness, caring, empathy, and reverence. Spiritual development moments help children to grow, explore, play, and ask big questions.

    Age focus: 0–8.
